In Pictures: Bog snorkellers compete in championship in Wales

The 34th annual World Bog Snorkelling Championships took place in Waen Rhydd bog, Wales on Sunday, with plenty taking part in fancy dress.

Participants took part from around the world in 2018, and this year saw yet more competitors snorkel through the bog in Llanwrtyd Wells.
